Pretty much what I expected. Tennessee is a damn joke.
It's time to get over your self pity as a UT fan and get behind your coach and quit acting like a pussy with that "all or nothing" attitude. This conference is a fricking beast and you've got to be damn lucky and have a damn strong football team to win it. You've got to give a coach time to build a foundation. Every game is not a referendum on whether or not your coach should be fired. Even Saban lost to ULM. You're lucky to have him considering Louisville's coach just turned you down because he didn't want no part of the grinder. You're talking about winning the SEC here. You win the SEC and you're a Top 2 team in the country by default, and you may not even be the best team in your conference then. Pull your hillbilly overalls up be glad you got a coach that has shown at least some competence.
Hell, Strong had no better odds on winning this conference. Neither did Gruden as pathetic as UT fans were holding on hope that was going to happen. You decided as a program that Dooley wasn't good enough. Time to try this guy because he was literally all that was left that was worth a shite.
